Insight Concealer Foundation Review And Swatches

IMG20161215120952

For anyone who knows me knows what a sucker I am for budget makeup products. It is not that I do not like splurging on high end makeup but if I can get a quality product for the quarter of the conventional prices, I am all game for it. In the hoard of exploring the much heard about brands, we tend to forget our local Indian brands which are capable of giving the international brands a run for their money and are most of the times priced really reasonably. One such brand which came to my vanity after much exploration is INSIGHT cosmetics. And this is for a fact that if a brand can do quality base makeup, it has to be good. So let us dig into the review for one of its best selling products, The Concealer Foundation.

Shade

I got it in the shade 04 Beige Matt which is not the perfect match for my medium to fair skin tone but can be adjusted with a light coloured concealer on top. It will work well for women above NC 40 in mac. Any which ways, it can be customised accordingly and is suitable for a wide array of Indian skin tones given its strong yellow undertones.

Packaging

The concealer foundation comes in a very standard see through plastic tube with a screw top nozzle and black imprinting which states all the details. The packaging is really light weight, convenient to use and travel friendly. Also, the nozzle does not dispense out more product than is necessary.

Pigmentation, Coverage and Stay

If there is one thing I am a true fan of in this concealer foundation, then it is the impeccable coverage and strong colour pigments that the formula has. I cannot call it extremely full coverage but it is the kind of buildable medium coverage foundations that I would prefer to use for the days when I need to go to college and my pesky dark circles are at their stubborn best. It is perfect for the daily wear concealing makeup routine without looking a bit too made up. Set it with a dusting of pressed powder for the daily wear looks. But for that extra oomph at special occasions, bake it with the VOV International loose powder for those bright under eyes.
